Stoke City vs West Ham United Prediction 16 December 2017

Tournament: English Premier League
Location: Bet365 Stadium
Match date: 16.12.2017 at 15:00

On December 16 2017 at 15:00 at the Bet365 Stadium in Stoke-on-Trent in the upcoming regular match of the 18th game week of the English Premier League the local Stoke City are playing against their guests West Ham United.

Stoke and West Ham have similar squads as they have a lot of players from different countries that used to play in different countries and have a lot of experience. The players of both teams are really strong individually and yet their cooperation is far from perfection. Stoke have 16 points gained in 1 matches while West Ham have 14 points. The guests really need to go up from the relegation zone as they are obviously capable to do more.

West Ham had their manager replaced two weeks ago and appointer David Moyes. The manager made some changes in the squad and he also changed the scheme. Now West Ham play with three defenders on the pitch which seems to be a real improvement. That tactics let them adapt to the performance of their opponents and get back totally to their defense if necessary. It’s really difficult to outplay West Ham in the middle now as they have a lot of high-quality players there.

The Hummers have already played three games with the new manager on the head after all of the changes made. They lost to Manchester City, outplayed Chelsea 1:0 and drew Arsenal without scoring or conceding a single goal. These were three top-clubs and such results are really impressive for the outsiders.

This weekend Moyes’ side will have to play against the opponents of their class. Their new tactics help them keep the middle of the pitch under control and make them cause a lot of problems to their competitors.

Anyway, it seems to us that the there won’t be a lot of goals scored in the upcoming match and yet it seems to us that the visitors are much more likely to win and gain three points this time.
